How To Make Stupid Mistakes

How To Make Stupid Mistakes

Have you ever made silly decisions or actions that you later regretted? Perhaps invested in something that with hindsight, just wasn’t worth it? Continued to do something even though you knew it would hurt you in the long run?

These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day-to-day thinking. In The Art Of Thinking Clearly, Rolf Dobelli shares common day to day mistakes that people make and how to avoid them.

    Avoid Making Common Mistakes Again

    Dobelli’s goal is to learn to recognise and evade the biggest errors in thinking. By doing that, he believes we might “experience a leap in prosperity. We need no extra cunning, no new ideas, no unnecessary gadgets, no frantic hyperactivity—all we need is less irrationality.”

    This book is simple and clear, which makes it easy for you to change the way you think and transform your decision-making-work, at home, every day. It reveals in short chapters, the most common errors of judgment, and how best to avoid them. While the list of fallacies is not complete, it’s a great launching pad into the best of what others have already figured out.

    Good Book to Read: What I Know For Sure

    Today, we are often caught up in climbing the ladder of success, building immense wealth, and indulging in material pleasures of the world because society has deemed that to be the determining factors of happiness. As a result, we may end up forgetting some basic but important values about life, love and relationships. What should we really be placing value on? And how can we reach so called self actualisation in a way that benefits not just ourselves?

    In What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey, the legendary talk show host shares candid and sometimes harsh life lessons she has learned over the years that every reader will be able to identify with at some stage in their life. Most importantly, it is a book that teaches us to be better versions of ourselves.
